* Quality Assured Data from SGP’s Annual Monitoring Process as of June 30, 2021.
Inaina Communty Forestry and Sustainable Livelihood Alternative Project
This organization is based out in Central Province, 60km outside Port Moresby, accessible via the Hiritano Highway and was instrumental with the application to CEPA and successful approval of the Inaina wildlife management area declaration in 2016, of total land area at 3,500 hectares. The organization received and implemented a planning grant intended for development of full proposal. The WMA is near a degraded forest area, resulting from logging and was essentially set up to protect remaining wildlife, freshwater sources and provide an alternate to livelihood such as eco-tourism. There is also activity to improve agricultural practices given that communities will continue to depend on their land for income purposes. Main activity being proposed is reforestation on 4500 hectares of land outside and within vicinity of the WMA, which will assist to attract back wildlife, disturbed from the clearance and educate locals on importance of continuing this reforestation. Native trees identified for this include eaglewood, masoia, kwila, rosewood, taun, walnut, red/black cedar and okari. Projected beneficiaries are the Inaina, Tutuna and Korona communities.
